A minimum of 60 credits, a public exhibition and a supporting paper are required for the MFA degree. The 60 graduate credit hours required for the MFA degree are distributed in the following manner:

Graduate faculty reviews with each student are held at the end of each semester (15, 30, and 45 hour reviews). Students must pass these reviews to continue in the program. Students who do not pass the review are generally placed on probation for one semester or in some cases asked to leave the program. Once a student is placed on probation, they have one semester to improve their performance or they will be asked to leave the program.
In some instances, the Department's Graduate Admissions Committee may establish additional requirements to be met by the individual student.
